Gunnar Hansen, VFX Supervisor on "Riddick," said," "Proof's work on the visual effects for this film really helped editorial tell the story. These shots were editorially sensitive, depicted several important moments within the storyline, and allowed our director David Twohy to provide Proof with quick feedback. The quality of Proof's finished VFX shots was so good, in fact, that a number of them even appeared in the film's trailer. Working with Proof on 'Riddick' was an excellent experience. They really stepped up to the plate, and did a truly great job."
